This is a soundboard - great show
This is my favorite show that I attended. From start to finish great jamming - the first set ranks upon my all time favorites, and the pre-drums is just awesome. I was 25 yards from the stage, dead center, with my feet straddling a 6 inch PVC pipe (which likely protected the wires) which ran halfway in the ground from the soundboard to the stage.
It poured like cats and dogs that day and the musicians, including Brent had plastic liners on their gear. In between songs in the first set, you will hear a women talking about directing the water over here. She is standing next to Brent when she is talking to him. The awning which covered the stage was dripping water right onto Brent's equipment, that is what the women is referring to. In addition, you can hear Brent play the old "Maxwell House" coffee theme during the break, which was his way of indicating that he wanted some coffee, as the big storm came through and cooled things down quite a bit. Brent got his coffee soon after that.
Stranger, Cassidy, Music Never Stopped are awesome, and the Bertha is cool too as it was pouring rain, and when Healy turned up Jerry in the mix, it was exciting.
Lastly, I love the sound of Phil's bass here - he was really on that day. "I can see chests moving from here...." The pre-drums was awesome, featuring one of the few continuous, two verse, Dark Stars of the late era. At 24 minutes, it goes in many places with the MIDI technology. It's awesome.
Watchtower was solid and Brent had the crowd in his hands during Mr. Fantasy, the Touch of Grey was great with giant dancing skeletons on each side of the stage, and getting The Weight as the encore was the icing on the cake. Here's hoping they'll release the whole show on DVD, as the pre-drums is part of View from the Vault 2.

Let your love 'rain' down on me
Oh, this show was not only fun because it rained like crazy but it was fun because the band just pulled out all the stops.

What's wrong with your ears?
I don't write comments here much but couldn't let this go. Just because you hear some people talking don't assume this is an AUD. Listen to the bass and the upfront vocals. Only a SBD sounds like that. So, at a minimum, it's a MTX, but I don't think so. My best guess is that it's a SBD with a mic in the audience.

A nice bit of 90's Dead
Almost positive that this is either a quality matrix or a superb aud. Just A Little Light is a great song that I haven't heard too much of but is actually really good. I really dig the use of synths by Brent, my favorite Dead Keyboard player (other than Pigpen). Dark Star is pretty stellar, but not outstanding. Overall, a nice show.

After reading all of the reviews from all of the sources I can't believe that nobody called out Cassidy. Easily a top 10 all time version of this song. Also I agree with someone who called out Victim. Not a favorite tune of mine but this version is played flawlessly. IMO Victim is a first set song. Its too much of a mood changer to be played in the 2nd set. Along with my first show, 7/13/89, this show is my favorite. This whole night though ranks very high as "MOST PSYCHEDELIC EXPERIENCE" of my life. Thanks buddy for that kind microdot !

this is NOT a soundboard
I reviewed this show after listening to another source, so I won't bother other than saying this was a FABULOUS show.
This source is NOT a soundboard, as I mentioned in my other review. Maybe it's a matrix recording, because you can hear everyone clearly, and you can CLEARLY hear the tapers talking during some of the songs & during all of the tunings between songs. If someone could change it to read that it's an AUDIENCE recording so we can download it, that would be wonderful.

Dawn is Breaking Everywhere
One of my favorite shows for rain and muddy madness, we gave new meaning that night to the term mosh pit.
Probably my favorite 'Touch of Grey'!

time of my life
the east coast swing from dc to foxborough to buffalo was amazing. went down from canada with out tickets for dc. no parking in sight. i had to park down the road from the stadium in some shady neighbourhood. on the way back i traded some kind for a ticket. bonus. my brother was miracled by the gate, my buddy scored a ticket as well. it was a rainy day. mud in the infield. foolish heart was amazing and of course box had perfect timing. during the show our initiative was to get to the phil zone. by show's end we were about 15ft from the stage. on the way there we just kept asking "where is phil?" funny.. but all in all a great show, one of the best. 90's shows were their peek.
